We discovered dining out in Iceland is expensive. It’s good that tax and tip are included in prices.

Wanted to try a hot spring by bay. Unfortunately, it was closed. We arrived too early.

It’s been a long day already. Still 11:30am. Take a lunch break at a cafe in downtown.

My lunch: Leek Soup
It was very sweet. Later the trip, I learned Icelandic dishes could be sweet in general.

His Lunch: Some kind of Sandwich
Too much mustard!

I don’t remember the name, but this place is probably in the worst 3 as food experience on our trip.

Once we got full, we got sleepy. It was around 4am in LA and 7am in NY (our friends/co-travelers come from NY) and we all didn’t sleep much on the plane.

Yes! Nap Time! We just parked a car in the market parking structure and slept for a couple hours. That gave us energy back.

Next, I did need a John. My husband and a friend already tried out and gave me the instruction, but I would be stuck in there otherwise because it doesn’t flush unless you open the door and get out. Now I remember public bathroom in Paris where my friend spent 10 minutes to figure how to flush in there and finally gave up.

Before the main event tonight, we went grocery shopping at Bonus since we were taking off on a road trip.
